Patch to check and report error

If using SSL with APR, a missing SSLCertificateFile attribute currently results in a somewhat cryptic message from the native code.

This patch checks whether the attribute is null before calling the native code, and reports a more specific error.

Patch applied to 7.0.x with a few corrections:
- use i18n support for error messages
- throw the exception earlier to avoid pointless initialisation

Will be included in 7.0.12 onwards.
